Summer 2017:

Earthview Institute for K-12 Educators from any Subject 

EarthView Institute is designed to develop teachers' confidence in the practical care and handling of this unique learning tool and allow teachers to enhance geography education by bringing EarthView to their own schools. Project EarthView has reached over 50,000 learners of all ages. Students who spend time learning about geography from inside this 20-foot portable classroom never look at the world the same way again. See EarthView in action.

Teachers who complete the program receive certificates of completion for 10 hours, and are required to use EarthView in their own schools at least once on Mondays-Thursdays during the 2017-2018 academic year. Teachers will have the options of using EarthView unassisted at no charge or receiving support from an experienced EarthView Wrangler for a fee of $150 per day.

Dates: May 2, 16, 30. Participants must attend all three sessions and will develop EarthView lesson plans during the week between meetings.

Time: 5:30 PM - 8:30 PM 

Location: Bridgewater State University, DMF Science and Mathematics Center

Cost: $125 and space is limited to 12 participants. 

Registration: Please use this website to register. Registrations are due April 9, 2017.
